Abstract

People are described as being deprived when they are lacking in resources considered to be basic necessities in society. While income poverty plays a major role in determining the level of socio-economic deprivation experienced by an individual or community, health, access to services, and the quality of the built and natural environment are also important factors. People who are more deprived are likely to be more vulnerable to (and less able to recover from) a range of shocks and challenges. The current Coronavirus pandemic, for example, has thrown into sharp focus the link between deprivation and vulnerability to health and economic shocks. In Wales (and the wider UK), preliminary analysis of official data on Coronavirus infection and mortality rates has found the impact of the disease has been greater in more deprived areas of the country - a phenomenon that has been widely discussed and reported. The short and long-term economic impacts of the Coronavirus lockdown and social distancing measures are also likely to be more severe in areas where deprivation is higher.
